The Cool Bean - Kids Books Read Aloud

Kindness and Self-Concept

Parent Tip of the Week: KEEP CHECKING IN

Even if you develop "new normal" with your child during these times and see their happiness grow, don't forget to check in with them often. Open ended questions are always best, as well as neutral type settings such as while you are coloring, driving, etc.
